Nope, it's a six foot long bike and it's solid.

I do have a folding bike that I carry in the truck with me.

I agree! Wouldn't chili without beans just be soup?? It's gotta have beans!

I would post my dad's chili recipe, but, I don't know what all he uses. It's a vegetarian chili and it's wonderful! Unfortunately he doesn't make it as spicy anymore when I go over there with the kids 'cause the kids refuse to eat spicy foods...I can't possibly be their mom I LOVE spicy!

Just like there is no crying in baseball, there is no beans in chili.
It's just meat, onion, a bunch of spices, pepper, garlic, maybe some tomato juice, maybe a dash of cornmeal, and that's pretty much it.

I think everyone has their own idea of what chili is supposed to be, but I want beans in mine.

You guys are making me hungry!!! I love chili, however, my better half hates it so I've never had the opportunity to make it. It's strange that he doesn't like chili because he LOVES spicy foods. Sweat-producingly hot foods!! I think it's the beans he hates.

And - to throw in my 2 cents with no offense to others - chili needs beans. If there's no beans it's meatsauce.

You're right. I should just say that Texas chili doesn't usually have beans in it. Before I moved to the midwest, I didn't that there was any other kind. In Ohio, I had meat sauce served over spaghetti and they called that chili.

That's interesting. Maybe it's a regional thing within Texas but most of the chili I've had there had beans.

You must have had the Skyline chili. Terrible stuff IMHO.

In the official rules, set by the ICCI, no fillers, such as beans, macaroni, hominy, etc., are used. That's for the official cookoffs. Others may have their own rules. I was raised on the ground beef and bean type, and make what some have called 'the best' chili. Over the years, it's gotten a lot milder though. No more 'making you sweat'!

True, but the ones I go to are more the local kind. They're a lot more fun.
